This assignment will be based on the reading Yuan Chen and “The Story of Ying-Ying” by James R. Hightower. I will attach the reading as a PDF as a file. *Read “The Story of Ying-Ying,” by Yuan Chen and additional scholarly info: pages: 90-106 (ending with the paragraph closing with “…Wang Chih’s friend Yang Fu-Kung.” *Note: focus primarily on the text of the actual story, “The Tale of Ying-Ying” (pages 93-103). Once having read the PDF and the required parts, Consider the following questions. Note SPECIFIC QUOTES, annotate or make note of page numbers to support your comments for the questions below!! 1 – Why does Chang’s attitude toward Ying-Ying change after he goes away? Why doesn’t he ask her to marry him? Write out your response and use a quote to support your explanation! 2 – How do you view the role of poetry and creative expression in this story? 3 – What is this story about? What themes are suggested? 4 – At the end of the story we read that Chang’s contemporaries agreed that he had “done well to rectify his mistake”. What was “his mistake” from his contemporaries’ point of views? What does this viewpoint reveal about social norms/gender relations at that time? All questions should be backed up by a quote from the text. Do not make the response long, just make them address the whole question with evidence and get straight to the point.
